Departmental Emergency Operations Center

The DEOC is focused on operational and supportive efforts of the incidents impacting ADOT.  The ADOT DEOC may be activated in support of the State Emergency Operations Center or on its own.

Examples of scenarios that would cause the ADOT DEOC to activate:

  • Large scale coordination of a single or multiple related incidents (wildfires, major roadway infrastructure failure, large area evacuations, etc.),
  • Outage of ADOT facilities lasting an extended period of time causing interruption or relocation of mission critical functions,
  • Planned events where ADOT resources will need high level coordination and support, and/or
  • Other incidences where demand on ADOT personnel and property calls for the EOC support infrastructure.

For more information on Departmental Emergency Operations Centers, the following classes are suggested:

  • IS-775: EOC Management and Operations
  • IS-552: The Public Works Role in Emergency Management
  • MAG-190 1.0 ICS/DEOC Interface (available through erma.az.gov)

For more information on ADOT's DEOC, contact EmergencyManagement@azdot.gov.

Civil Rights

Pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), ADOT does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability. Persons that require a reasonable accommodation based on language or disability should contact ADOT’s Civil Rights Office at civilrightsoffice@azdot.gov. Requests should be made as early as possible to ensure the State has an opportunity to address the accommodation.

De acuerdo con el título VI de la Ley de Derechos Civiles de 1964 y la Ley de Estadounidenses con Discapacidades (ADA por sus siglas en inglés), el Departamento de Transporte de Arizona (ADOT por sus siglas en inglés) no discrimina por raza, color, nacionalidad, edad, género o discapacidad. Personas que requieren asistencia (dentro de lo razonable) ya sea por el idioma o por discapacidad deben ponerse en contacto con la Oficina de Derechos Civiles en civilrightsoffice@azdot.gov. Las solicitudes deben hacerse lo más pronto posible para asegurar que el equipo encargado del proyecto tenga la oportunidad de hacer los arreglos necesarios.
